    There are lots of people who hand made drums alone. They all are to small and to expensive to become a succes ever.

      I just clicked on the link above. I'm accessing the Net from work via a proxy, and it returned the error "Access is restricted at this time. The Websense category 'Weapons' is not allowed".

      Maybe appropriate!

        Never say never putt... Didn't DW start as one of those small expensive hand-made drum companies? Look at where they are now! A HUGE, expensive hand-made drum company...

        They may not be a good example, (I don't know the history of the company) but there are several hand-made drum companies in the world.

          I don't know the history of the company

          Taken from my book (which will never be published because of the bad English :

          Drum Workshop DW arises in 1978 from the drum school of Don Lombardi who buys up the Camco engine compound. The first DW-product is a drummers throne; not a pedal! After the descending of the patents, which Hoshino (Tama) ownes, DW manufacts the famous DW 5000CX drumpedals on base of the Camco chain-pedal principal. In 1983 this pedal is followed by the 5002 twin-pedal, which sets the spotlights again on these double bass drumpedal. In the mid 1980s DrumWorkshop starts with making drums in the Camco tradition.

          O yes, and almost forgot: DW doesn't hand manufact drums. They use standard Keller shells.


          However, I agree with you on the never say never statement.

            If anyone will be to "Musicmesse 2001" in Germany from 7 to 11 of March , he will be able to test some of his awesome muple snares.

            Don't know if there will be any e-drum
            company there but I hope so !

                Hey putt...

                I knew about DW and Keller... but I thought that was a recent development. Didn't DW make their shells originally?

                    It's possible that they made a few drum shells on the Camco tools. But now almost all companies buy at Keller.

                      DW used to use Keller shells up until a few years ago, now they make their own.

                        That is correct. DW does indeed make their own shells now. Study up, Putt!!

                            "Study up, Putt" means make sure you know your facts before claiming that almost all companies buy from Keller. Many do, but not most. And DW doesn't buy Keller. They make their own high-end shells...
